The process of rug making is very complex.

If rugs could talk...

Wouldn't you love being in this time visiting a rug merchant.

How fascinating it is that oriental rugs have their origins thousands of years ago!  Though centuries have passed, little in rug making has changed.  There may be fewer tribal rugs make now than in the past, but then are we so sure?  Or are there tribes – and rugs – yet undiscovered that 50 or 100 years hence will grace the marketplaces of the world?  Within the walls of countless individual cottage shops and city factories, rugs continue to be woven today as they have been since the light of dawn shone on early civilization.  Part of the beauty of any oriental rug lies in its ageless links to the past:  in design, color, originality, and, of course, in the fact that it is the work of human hands at ancient skills.  If you should have a story to tell, please send email and we’ll review and upload to this page.
